We are pleased to announce OSIRIS’ first newsletter. Here you will find some of the highlights of 2017. It sums up an active 2017 - with focus on conceptual and methodological work.
In mid-December 2017 the OSIRIS team co-hosted and participated at the Workshop on Medical Innovation at the University of Iceland.
In the last week of November OSIRIS organised a successful PhD course called "Science, innovation and impact".
The OSIRIS blog is happy to post a new blog post. This time from Isamel Ràfols, on measuring societal impact.
Wednesday 11th of October OSIRIS-members organized a session on new directions in impact measurements at the Atlanta Conference on Science and Innovation Policy.
The OSIRIS blog is now launched. Here we write shorter dissemination and opinion pieces about impact of research based on our activities within OSIRIS. The first blog post is from Richard Woolley and Nicolas Robinson-Garcia. They go behind the evaluation results from the UK to discuss what the weak but positive correlation between excellence and impact means.
What are the experiences with impact case studies? We invite you to a seminar to discuss impact cases in research evaluations at NIFU November 1st, 14.00-17.00
TIKs Magnus Gulbrandsen and Taran Thune have recently published a new paper in The Journal of Technology Transfer: The effects of non-academic work experience on external interaction and research performance
Taran Thune and Magnus Gulbrandsen from the OSIRIS team have published an article in the European Journal of Innovation Management on the idea generation process in life science. Based on a data set of disclosed inventions to the technology transfer office Inven2, it is found that combined knowledge from basic research and clinical settings seems particularly important for life science invention. Such combinations appear in different ways. The article can be found here.
OSIRIS is announcing a 2 year position as researcher, funded by the Work and Welfare Directorate (NAV) which is one of the user partners in the centre.
In the last week of November 2017 OSIRIS will organise a one-week PhD course called "Research, Innovation and Impact". The role of public research in innovation, university-industry relations, impact and policies supporting impact are central themes. The course will also be open to a small number of practitioners.
The OSIRIS team in Manchester has recently appointed Maria Karaulova as postdoctoral researcher.
The OSIRIS team's presentations on the impact of research are now available online.
On March 27th, OSIRIS, in cooperation with NOS-HS, hosted a Nordic workshop on impact in the social sciences and humanities.
